They Plan to Travel Again with VBT

  • Our guides were over-the-top in all categories—informative, knowledgeable and competent leaders! More than that, they became a part of the group, not just the tour guides. I am eagerly anticipating my next VBT bicycle tour.
    Quote Image 1 Judi W. Sunnyvale, CA
  • This was our 2nd VBT tour and we have no regrets. We enjoyed our fellow bikers and our tour guides were first class. Accommodations were excellent, food was wonderful and who is focused on great farming and wine more than the French?
    Quote Image 2 Mark B. Guilford, CT
  • VBT's tour of Costa Rica made me fall in love with this country. Exploring by bike was great a way to experience Costa Rica's lush, green landscape at a slow pace and feel closer to nature. I would go back in a heartbeat!
